A Time for Love


 
This music piece whether in its vocal song form or its jazz instrumental versions captivates me a lot. I feel touched by the music and the song at a very deep psycho-emotional level, evoking feelings of romance and tremendous love. There is something spiritual, too, about the song with its Zen-like quality lyrics.

I have just made a mix of two jazz interpretations: one by the great jazz guitarist Earl Klugh, the other by the more contemporary jazz trumpet player Roy Hargrove.

In between the two jazz renditions is the 2009 released (Love Is the Answer album) vocal sung by the exceptional diva who has graced our lives for a number of decades now with her incomparable voice and singing style — the one and only Barbra Streisand.

Barbra Streisand Album containing “A Time for Love”

          Lyrics
          A time for summer skies
          For hummingbirds and butterflies
          For tender words that harmonize with love

          A time for climbing hills
          For leaning out of windowsills
          Admiring the daffodils above

          A time for holding hands together
          A time for rainbow coloured weather
          A time of make believe that we’ve been dreaming of

          As time goes drifting by
          The willow bends and so do I
          But all my friends, whatever sky above
          I know a time for spring
          A time for fall
          But most of all
          A time for love

          A time for holding hands together
          A time for rainbow coloured weather
          A time of make believe that we’ve been dreaming of

          As time goes drifting by
          The willow bends and so do I
          But oh my friends, whatever sky above
          I know a time for spring
          A time for fall
          But best of all
          A time for love

Words from the lyrics that resonate in the heart with echoes of the Biblical Book of Ecclesiastes:

A time for summer skies, for hummingbirds and butterflies . . . for tender words that harmonize with love.

A time for climbing hills, for leaning out of windowsills . . .

Admiring the daffodils above(?).

A time for holding hands together, a time for rainbow coloured weather . . .
A time of make believe that we’ve been dreaming of.

I know a time for spring, a time for fall;
but most of all, a time for love.

As time goes drifting by, the willow bends and so do I.

But oh my friends, whatever sky above,
I know a time for spring, a time for fall;
but best of all, a time for love
. ❤

About Marc of Contemplative Pathways

Marc teaches contemplative meditation in the context of contemporary mysticism. His understanding of the mystical life is rooted in over 30 years of study, practice, unfoldment, realization and experience, in the course of which he has received the gifts of spiritual discernment and transmission. His teaching work meaningfully shifts consciousness in a student through the process and alchemy of mystical transformation. Marc facilitates the mystical teachings under the style of Contemplative Pathways, enabling others to embark on the spiritual journey by learning the Truth teaching and living its principles. He has been conducting classes and meditation meetings in the San Francisco Bay Area in a classroom, lecture, workshop or group practice setting, for over fifteen years. His methodology of instruction is divinely inspired and firmly rooted in pure, authentic mysticism. His approach to the mystical life is essentially nondenominational, nonsectarian, culturally interfaith, spiritually transreligious, and definitively unitive and nondualistic. His other contributions to worldwide spiritual awakening and the global contemplative movement include spiritual mentoring and spiritual healing practice. Within the context of the great shift in consciousness now occurring all over the planet, Marc’s work presently focuses on individual and collective spiritual transformation and healing through the practice of contemplation or meditation, as the vehicle for transcendence and ascension to the higher dimensions of mystical consciousness. He remains firmly committed to the vision of a global spiritual awakening and the divine promise of humanity’s mystical illumination.
